Stampin' for the Weekend challenge #7

Hiya folks and a happy Friday to you all. Today is week 7 over at Stampin' For The Weekends challenge blog, can you believe how quick these weeks are flying by. Our sponsor this week is Fred She Said and Tracey is very kindly donated a $25 gift voucher for the lucky winner to spend.
Our theme this week is "70's Rock and Roll"
There are three song titles you can choose from,
Three Times a Lady - The Commodores
Tangled up in Blue - Bob Dylan
Seasons in the Sun - Terry Jacks

So with it being the end of term, I decided to go with the "Seasons in the Sun" theme as I wanted to make cards for my youngest daughters teachers and these are what I came up with.

For both cards I have used DCWV papers. Miss Anya has been coloured with Copics. The lil "Box in a Bag" is so easy to make, I followed a step by step tutorial from Split Coast Stampers, inside the lil bags houses a cute lil cuddly toy that Yasmin choose for both her teachers.
The rest of my lovely teamies over at SFTW have come up with some fab creations, just have a lil nosey at their blogs to see for yourselves, it's great to see everyone's different interpretations of the song titles this week and hopefully you will be able to play along too.

I have now, well as of yesterday, officially finished work for the holidays, 6 lovely weeks off....yay!!!! that's is one of THE best things about working in a school. So hopefully, daughters permitting, should have more time to craft and visit all my lovely blogging buddies, as I feel I have really neglected you all lately, so huge apologies once again.

I hope you all have a fantastic weekend and enjoy the summer hols, my children break up school today....ooooo just realised I may have 6 weeks off......but so do they.....lots of kids entertaining to do!!!! xx vicki xx
